FT Hibernians 0-0 Shamrock Rovers
Nice move by Thaylor, sets up Degabriele, keeper Mannus clutches his shot.
90 minutes played. 6 mins extra time.
Shamrock venture forward, Gaffney gets shot off inside box but it is well wide
Again Hibs surge forward, Dunstan Vella does well to get a shot off..oh that was very close…just drifted wide of the post….
Diakite tries to pick out a Hibs player in a crowded Rovers box, difficult.
Ambitious from Diakite, from way out shoots but way over the bar. Drinks break.
66 mins: Goal,,No, Towell was offside. Still 0-0. Again a warning of how dangerous Shamrock Rovers can be on the break.
60 mins: All the pressure coming from Hibs as Shamrock pull everyone back. With a three goal lead the Irish side can afford to sit back but Hibs deserve a goal for their efforts. Grech winds up for a shot outside the box but pulls his attempt just wide of the post.
Cagey opening to this second period. Hibs looking for the first goal but need to be wary of Shamrock Rovers who can be dangerous on the break. Ten minutes gone, still no goals in this tie.
46 mins:Aaron Greene nearly through for Shamrock but well marshalled by Hibs defence. Early warning though.
Extra time and Hibs finishing strongly. Grech shoots over from close range, Groothusen sets up Attard but his effort goes wide. Big chances gone begging but such an improvement for Hibs. Half time Hibs 0-0 Shamrock Rovers.
45 mins: big chance for Hibs; Artiles makes run down left, crosses into box but Degabriele cannot keep his shot down. That was so close.
Five minutes to break. Hibernians pressing forward, how they would like to pull a goal back before half time.
30 mins: good opening half hour for Hibs but now Shamrock are finding their feet and seeing more of the ball. Hibs need to be careful.
Shamrock break forward, Greene and Gaffney taking pressure of their defenders but move snuffed out by Hibs back four. Still goal-less.
Hibs working well down right side, getting behind Shamrock defenders, just need a good cross into box.
Fine move by Hibs, Shamrock keeper Mannus can only push ball out for corner. Hibs fail to take advantage.
10 minutes gone and encouraging play from Hibernians, not letting Shamrock Rovers settle.
Bright start by Hibernians. Enormous task to try to overturn 3 goal deficit but they are giving it a go. Just need a goal.
